      The Artist’s Circle is a small, artsy independent film that stars Michael Shanks, most known for his role as Daniel Jackson on Stargate SG-1. In this short drama from 2000, Shanks plays ‘the artist’. He’s promised his critics a masterpiece that they won’t forget. Among the critics present is one played by

      Don S. Davis, another SG-1 actor and a very good friend of Shanks.

      The entire film is only about nine minutes long, but it’s such a hoot. While the critics watch and wonder what the artist is creating, the artist quietly goes about his work. In fact, Shanks doesn’t utter a single line in ...


      • the production. He just works on his project. All the talking is done by Davis and the other performers who portray the critics.

        Perhaps a hint to what is coming is that the artist is simply tired of having his work criticized. Everyone knows a work of art better than he does.

        He’s going for the final critique, and it’s just brilliant. I don’t want to say more because I don’t want to give this away.

        The Artist’s Circle had one nomination for Best Editing in the Leo Awards. It’s a good short and very entertaining. As I said, the ending is just a hoot.
